  • 1st appearance and origin of Daredevil
  • 1st appearance of Foggy Nelson
  • 1st appearance of Karen Page
  • Regie Collects: This book is a severely undervalued key that is actually a solid read despite its age. And, if I’m being honest, the new Daredevil series written by Chip Zdarsky is fantastic and makes me appreciate this book all the more.
